The Portwell subsidiary, Mitwell, has announced the market launch of the Kuber-212G, a compact-sized, fanless embedded system highlighting the latest 14nm Intel Celeron N3350 processor. It is a compact 99mm (L) x 63mm (W) x 92mm (D) design, low power consumption, high-performance computing and powerful graphics engine, which make the device an excellent IoT gateway for harsh industrial automation applications, factory automation and demanding applications.

The device is packaged in a rugged, fanless case and features the latest Intel Celeron processor N3350 with 4GB (LPDDR4 2400) memory. The new Box PC profits from about 30% more computing power and 45% more graphics performance opposed to the previous generation, and provides powerful Intel Gen9 graphics, with up to 18 execution units, enabling the connection of 4k displays via display port. Also, the fanless device operates with a TDP below 10W, depending on the version, and supports 12-30VDC +/-20% power consumption for demanding applications. The device also provides 32GB (up to 256GB optional) of integrated eMMC, a M.2 Key B2242 and one Mini PCIe - a M.2 Key-E 2230 complete the storage and connectivity expansion choices. For local data acquisition and communication, the device provides a wide set of industrial interfaces such as 2xGb Industrial Ethernet (Intel i210), 2x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0 and 2x RS232 (via RJ45). Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and Yocto Linux as operating systems and Microsoft Azure guarantee high flexibility for the use in various IoT-focused applications.

The device is intended for heavy-industry demands of EN 61000-6-4 (EMI) and EN 61000-6-2 (EMS) and the EMS standards IEC 61000-4-4, 4-6, 4-8, which contain extended EFT, CS and PFMF criteria, which makes it an excellent solution for applications in harsh environment.
